1. Remember – Life is a race. If you don’t run fast enough, someone will overtake you and move faster.
“Ever since we were young, we believed that life was a race. If we didn’t run fast enough, we would be trampled and overtaken. Man, even to be born, we had to race 300 million sperm.” – Farhan.
2. Never study to be successful, study for self-efficiency. Don’t run behind success. Follow behind excellence, success will come all way behind you.
Stay hungry. Stay foolish. Never study to be successful, study for self-efficiency. Pursue excellence, and success will follow. We’ve always wanted to be successful but we put less to no efforts at all to become one. So let’s change our mantra, let’s work hard and let success chase us.
3. There was knowledge everywhere. Go get it from anywhere you can.
Knowledge. You may take it anywhere, because it’s everywhere. It is learning something every day. Knowledge is not a passion from without the mind, but an active exertion of the inward strength, vigor and power of the mind, displaying itself from within.
4. And this is a college, not a pressure cooker! The lion in a circus learns that he needs to sit on the chair if his owner has a whip in his hand. But that lion is called well-trained, not well-educated.
College is not a pressure-cooker. Many students learn because they pressure themselves to learn. I am in no exempt to that. Sometimes, we study and pressure ourselves to eventually learn what we have studied so that we’ll pass exams, we’ll get passing marks, we’ll not humiliate ourselves. But the more we pressure ourselves, the lesser we learn. The things we pressured ourselves to learn will only last perhaps during the course of our study, many days later, many years later, perhaps after college, we’ll forget the things we tried to learn, so we review, and we re-pressure ourselves, and this is not studying at all.
5. Your friend fails, you feel bad. Your friend tops, you feel worse.
When your friend fails, you feel badly for him. When your friend outdoes you, you feel bad about yourself. It is easier to feel sympathy for someone else’s failure than to justify your own. You might feel sad when a friend is down, but if you are competing against him when he wins you will feel much worse for your loss.
6. All is well.
If there’s one thing you’re stubborn about – choose to be stubborn about this: Everything will turn out the way it should be, and it will BENEFIT ALL. Everything is going to be okay. Learn to trust that there is something/someone greater than all of us, that we are really part of something GREATER.
